Rwanda regime to UK regime: No refunds on migrant abduction/deportation deal

Source: La Croix [France]

“The Rwandan government has stated that the controversial migrant agreement with the United Kingdom, which has now been abandoned by the new British government, did not stipulate the return of funds. New British Prime Minister Keir Starmer announced on July 6 the abandonment of the plan to deport asylum seekers and migrants who arrived illegally in the United Kingdom to the East African country. He declared that the project, devised by the previous Conservative government, was ‘dead and buried.’ Since former Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the plan in April 2022, London has paid £240 million (around $307 million) to Kigali.” (07/10/24)
